DUM MAARO DUM collected approx. Rs 16.5 cr in its opening weekend. The business was clearly divided – it was excellent in plexes of Mysore and Nizam circuits, but plexes in several territories ranged from average to below average. Business at single screens remained low all through the weekend, despite the holidays. Breakup:- Thu [previews] 80 lacs, Fri 5.4 cr, Sat 4.7 cr, Sun 5.6 cr.
All numbers include paid previews.
Mumbai – 6.50 crore
Delhi/UP – 3.13 crore
East Punjab – 1.17 crore
West Bengal – 86 lakhs
Bihar – 20 lakhs
CP Berar – 51 lakhs
CI – 40 lakh
Rajasthan – 49 lakhs
Nizam – 1.15 crore
Mysore – 1.21 crore
Others – 52 lakhs
TOTAL – 16.14 croreMysore Equals East Punjab for Dum Maaro Dum
Dum Maaro Dum has grossed more in Mysore than East Punjab which has never happened before for a major film. In East Punjab it collected 1.17 crore nett including paid previews while Mysore was 1.21 crore nett including paid previews.
This is because the collections are very good in Mysore but very bad in East Punjab. The East Punjab and Mysore weekend numbers for major films released this year are as follows.
No One Killed Jessica
East Punjab – 1.20 crore
Mysore – 88 lakhs
Yamla Pagla Deewana
East Punjab – 3.53 crore
Mysore – 49 lakhs
Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji
East Punjab – 1.33 crore
Mysore – 62 lakhs
East Punjab – 1.83 More >

TEEN THAY BHAI had a disastrous weekend. It collected approx. Rs. 2.30 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup [rough estimates]:- Fri 60 lacs, Sat 80 lacs, Sun 90 lacs. Below the mark!
THANK YOU meanwhile collected approx. Rs. 7.5 cr in its second weekend. Breakup:- Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 2.5 cr, Sun 3.25 cr. Total so far: approx. Rs. 37 cr nett. The dull response to ‘Teen Thay Bhai’ helped ‘Thank You’ marginally, but the overall figures are below the mark. While the single screens contributed to the revenue, the multiplexes remained dull.

Last week’s release THANK YOU collected approx. Rs. 30.5 cr nett in Week 1 [official figures issued by UTV]. Breakup:- Fri 5 cr, Sat 6 cr, Sun 7.5 cr, Mon 3 cr, Tue [holiday] 3.5 cr, Wed 2.5 cr, Thu [holiday] 3 cr. Ideally, given the cast of the film, plus in view of the fact that the film teams the Akshay – Anees Bazmee combo after two Blockbuster Hits, besides the holidays throughout the week, the film should’ve collected at least Rs 50 cr to Rs 55 cr in Week 1. The business is thus below the mark.

THANK YOU collected approx. Rs. 18.1 cr in its opening weekend. Breakup:- Fri 4.85 cr, Sat 5.75 cr, Sun 7.5 cr. Ideally, the film should’ve had at least Rs 25 cr + weekend, in view of the fact that it’s the first biggie of 2011 and also has had a wide release, with plexes performing a good number of shows. The business was better at single screens of mass circuits, but the multiplexes were not up to the mark.

Murder mysteries always have a tremendous fan following. Whether reading a book or watching a film of this genre, the pleasure is immense as it not only the characters of the story, but you yourself are using the grey cells of your brain to find out the killer. However, the expert stories are those where you won’t be able to guess the culprit till the end and that’s where the satisfaction lies. And that is where Game falters. Minutes before the unveiling of the killer’s identity, the viewer correctly guesses it. Although the film has its moments and surprises, the kick you get after watching a good whodunit is clearly missing in the case of Game.
The story of the movie: Kabir Malhotra (Anupam Kher), a reclusive billionaire, invites 4 strangers – Neil Menon (Abhishek Bachchan), OP Ramsay (Boman Irani), Vikram Kapoor (Jimmy Shergill) and Tisha Khanna (Shahana Goswami) on his private island in Greece. Neil runs a casino in Istanbul as a cover up to his drug business, Ramsay is a leading prime ministerial candidate in Thailand, Vikram is a famous film actor of Bollywood while Tisha is a crime journalist in London. All 4 are tempted to come to Kabir’s island although they neither knew Kabir, nor do Kabir knew them. Once at Kabir’s island, they find themselves trapped in an ugly game and they also realize the connection between the 4 of them-Maya (Sarah Jane Dias).
